Chelsea try to turn off the Bayern tap

Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger has admitted speaking to the winger about life in Germany.

Chelsea will report Bayern Munich to Federation Internationale de Football Association if they find evidence that the Bundesliga champions have been "tapping up" Callum Hudson-Odoi, Goal can confirm.

The Bavarians have been linked with a new £35m after their previous bid was rejected and it has been claimed that the teenager prefers a move to Germany.

The German giants are vigorously pursuing Hudson Odoi, 18, who is one of the brightest talents to emerge from Chelsea - and England - in recent years.

The 18-year-old is yet to start a Premier League match for the Blues and has only made one top flight appearance this season, but that could be about to change with Sarri keen to keep hold of the youngster.

The young winger featured for the whole game in Chelsea's Carabao Cup Semi Final First Leg loss to Tottenham last night, in a move that many read as Sarri trying to convince the England worldwide to stay. "It was just a general question from him to know, because he is still young".

His sole Premier League appearance so far this season was as an injury replacement in a 2-1 win at Watford on December 26. You can see it from both sides.

"So, why wouldn't he think about moving somewhere else if a club like Bayern Munich are in for him?" It is something he needs to decide for his future.

'For his future, I wish him all the best but I just wish he stays with us'.

"He played like a player of 25 or 26 years, I think - very good match of application, very good in the defensive phase, very, very good".

"I can announce that we managed to get the services of Benjamin Pavard from July 1, 2019", Salihamidzic told reporters during a Bayern training camp in Qatar, without giving any financial details of the transfer. He is a young player who has great potential to evolve. He has all the tools to become a big player, but he has to work a lot.
